Description
The Middle Ages began with the collapse of the Roman world. Artistically rich and varied in themselves, the medieval centuries also founded both the cultural Renaissance and the religious reformation that followed. We know what this era looked like through its remaining art and architecture, but what did the medieval and Renaissance world sound like? From the evidence that remains, modern performers have re-discovered, re-created and re-invented some of the earliest surviving music of Europe. This book looks at such early composers as Josquin, Dufay, Landini, Taverner, Tallis, Obrecht, Victoria, and Palestrina, with black and white illustrations and a timeline of concurrent events in music, history, art, and literature, as well as links within the text to 2 1/2 hours of superb Naxos musical recordings online at a dedicated website.
